Captive peacock breeding in Hyderabad (the video is loading, may take long. Please bear with us...)
A Zoological Park in Hyderabad is all set to increase the number of peacocks through a unique method of captive breeding. Lately, the population of peacocks has been dwindling across the country due to various reasons ranging from poaching to ingestion of poison through pesticides and insecticides from the fields. Figures show a success rate of about 50 per cent with around 169 peacock eggs hatched through this process. After their growth the authorities plan to send these chicks into the wild.
